I picked up this novel that had been on my book shelf for ages and found it to be entertaining. It's just the thing for a mystery fan to have for their summer vacation. It has good action and a believable plot that's hard to anticipate.
Desmond Winter's wife, Connie, disappeared years ago. She left a note that she'd return but to give her time.
He's tried to do that but as his health was changing, he thought it would leave his children in a difficult legal position if he died and Connie was missing.
Brady Coyne made inquiries into Connie's disappearance but without success. Now he gets a call from Des's son, Mark. Mark's wife has been murdered and Mark thinks that since he has a record for drugs, he'll be a suspect.
Brady tries to help but the police are uncooperative. Brady persists and puts things together. He's a good character with enough unique traits to make him interesting. He seems like a country lawyer with a love of fishing and trading jokes with his friends but when it comes to this case, he's like a bulldog on the trail.
William G. Trapply does a credible job in making the novel realistic and with a number of well placed surprises, the story is refreshing.
